 Martin, it sounds like you've got too much advance,try backing off some of 
the timing (just a little).  You could also disconnect the vac hose and plug 
it and then set the timing at 28to30 degrees @ 3000rpm (timed like an 009)  
and see if this helps.

 You can't go wrong doing a basic tune up, as it gives you a good idea of 
what was done/wasn't done lately. It also gives you that good warm feeling 
that you can now eliminate that from the equation. 
 If the carbs are not popping or sneezing then they are pretty close now. I'm 
currently running Weber 34 ICTs and an 009 distributor on my Notch, and to 
some people that combination shouldn't work, but I've been using it for over 
4 years that way. What you need to get is a carb synchronizer (even if you 
had Solexs you'd still need it). I'll try to find the Weber site if you like 
and post it here for you, then you can get the info you need for them. I hope 
this helps.
